Nike junior golfers are housed in double rooms on campus and have their meals in the dining halls, giving each camper a glimpse of the college life. Golf instruction takes place at Echo Valley Country Club a few minutes from campus which is a perfect environment to improve your game. Each day consists of breakfast, morning range instruction, lunch, afternoon course play, dinner, and evening activities. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
